Bundy was examined for seven hours by Dorothy Otnow Lewis, a professor from New York University Medical Center. Lewis diagnosed Bundy as a manic depressive whose crimes usually occurred during his depressive episodes.

from a psych

There is very little likelyhood that he would be dx with DID. Psychopathy is a set of characteristics, not a diagnosis. I would most likely say he was Antisocial Personality Disorder, Alcohol/Substance Dependence or Abuse, some type of Schizophrenia or Psychotic disorder, possibly some sort of dissociative disorder, but like i stated, i doubt it would be DID as well a wide range of paraphilias.

Ted Bundy
by: Traci

Does anybody know who his psychologist was? He was a fascinating individual. Although what he did was horrendous, I think they should have let him live so we could have the opportunity to study him. I am studying Forensic Psychology and he is one of my major case studies. A lot of psychopaths are extremely intelligent and as we know, there is always border line psychosis with people like that.

I believe he does show major signs of Narcissism. i.e.: Representing oneself in court

Bundy

I would not say that Bundy had Dissociative Identity Disorder. While it might appear that Bundy had two distinct identities, in reality Bundy's behavior is a perfect example of psychopathy. For instance, Bundy uses his superficial charm, glibness, and ability to manipulate those around him. At first glance this may appear to be an identity distinctly different from the side of himself he showed his victims, but in fact Bundy's lack of empathy, shallow emotions, lack of remorse and guilt, callousness, grandiosity, poor behavioral control, impulsivity, inability to accept responsibility for his actions, etc. are all pervasive personality traits which allow Bundy to be an excellent social chameleon and sexual predator.
